  • 13th Annual Cruickshank Race for Shelter
    13th Annual Cruickshank Race for Shelter Full Details [X]
    8:30 AM - 2:00 PM

    The 13th Annual Cruickshank Race for Shelter is Saturday, October 17th during Family Weekend.

    The Cruickshank Race is a 5K run/2K walk that brings together students, families, alumni, faculty, staff and the community to raise funds for the Babson chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the Office of Faith and Service's volunteer initiatives.

    This year's race will be in memory of the race's namesake Bill Cruickshank. Before passing earlier in the year, Mr. Cruickshank devotedly served as a Senior Alumnae Relations Officer, and a Trustee of Babson College from the 1980's to the 90's. Since 2000, he was an Overseer and continued to raise funds for his, and our, beloved college. Proceeds from this race will be added to his scholarship fund, which has allowed the Office of Faith and Service to offer four alternative break trips to El Salvador, Louisiana, and Mississippi for the Babson Community.  

     All entrants are invited to enjoy a pre-race ceremony celebrating Mr. Cruickshank's impact on Babson, and post-race refreshments and awards ceremony.
